Colors organization

The following example explains the color organization on a page, using a horizontal DIN A3 with horizontal color organization.  Selecting 3 columns and 2 Rows using automatic scale factor. The automatic scale factor will scale the color patches to fill the page width. In this example, the automatically calculated scale is 285.61%. 

If you want to fill the page with color patches, press on Calculate and it will automatically increase the rows, in this example would be 5 rows. 

In case you want to use the 100% scale factor, enable the Automatic checkbox and change the scale to 100 % or other. The patches will be scaled and keep the previously selected column and row organization. 

To fill out the page with patches using 100% scale factor, press on Calculate and it will automatically increase the rows and columns, in this example would be 8 columns and 16 rows.
